    Commercial Support and Training for Debian?
    by DanielS on Tuesday, October 02 @ 11:45:43 BST

    I work for a large IT company in Melbourne, Australia, in a division that’s an almost all-NT shop. Out of 65-odd production servers, all but 3 are NT. That means, our operators and everyone, all only know NT. I’ve deployed 3 Linux servers in, but they’re RedHat on the insistence of management. They need to be installable (to NT people) within an hour (given procedures, of course), and fully usable. While I feel that Debian comes close, the answer is a firm no – RedHat must be used. (That isn’t a corporation-wide policy, however, as their main servers run Debian). Is there anywhere where they can get professional Debian training? Or even support? Preferably located in Melbourne, Australia, but hey, share your experiences 🙂 I work for a large IT company in Melbourne, Australia, in a division that’s an almost all-NT shop.
